Best High Pile Shag Rug

Best Features: - Off-white shag rug - Great for living rooms
Simple and soft, this bestseller makes a point to blend into the background without looking washed out. Grab this for its versatility of style and an immediately cozy feel.
Featured Review: “Very cozy rug, our cats love it and cuddle on it all the time now. It’s surprisingly sturdy and even the kitty claws don't seem to be breaking anything.” - DianeHu

Best Minimalist Shag Rug

Best Features: - High-quality feel - Minimalist interior design
The solid color pattern creates a blank canvas for bedrooms, home offices, living rooms and dining areas. Per our staff designer Brynna Evans, its luxe and cloudlike top “is best paired with sleek clean lines like a wood coffee table for interest of texture contrast.”
Featured Review: “We love this area rug we purchased at Living Spaces. Its soft shag feels great on the feet and the corners are not curling. Thank you!” - Marie

Best Natural Fiber Shag Rug

Best Features: - Great rug for cozy home decor
The wool creates natural warmth and a cozy homestead feel, while the monotone palette makes this piece versatile enough for styles ranging from California-casual to modern to traditional.
Featured Review: “Very nice rug that's nice to the touch and soft enough to sit on. We have it on a 3/4 inch pad on hardwood floors and it's great!” - Thoff13

Best Faux Fur Shag Area Rug

Best Features: - Glam style
This completely synthetic-material-made rug feels like the opposite: its lush fibers will make for happy feet in any household. Thanks to its synthetic properties, this rug is also easier to clean than 100% natural rugs (and leaves that “new rug feel” for longer than most).
Featured Review: “Soft, looks great in any room, bigger than I expected” - Russell3

Best Low Pile Shag Rug

Best Features: - High + low pile
A playful take on shag rugs, this design leaves no room for boredom. Use it to spruce up an old space; the vivid black and white brings a crisp vibe.
Featured Review: “Great quality rug that lays down immediately after unrolling.” - Logg
